MARS Center, Moscow
(3.6/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Центр МАРC – это площадка для демонстрации художественных проектов, затрагивающих все человеческие чувства. Наши проекты ориентированы на вовлечение зрителя в мультимедийное пространство и получение им необычного эмоционального опыта через взаимодействие с интерактивной средой.

Центр МАРС располагается в историческом месте Москвы, в районе Цветного бульвара. Это динамично развивающееся пространство эксперимента и диалога в области цифрового искусства и новых медиа. Здесь регулярно проводятся масштабные выставки и фестивали с участием как российских, так и зарубежных художников.

Весной 2015 года на базе Центра открылась лаборатория Curiosity Media Lab, в которой художники-резиденты занимаются собственными технологическими разработками. Сегодня продолжается набор профессионалов для участия в общей деятельности лаборатории и разработок индивидуального художественного продукта. Каждый участник получает все необходимые материалы, рабочее место, консультации с кураторами лаборатории, медиахудожниками Яном Калнберзиным и Евгением Афониным, и другими специалистами области.

На первом этаже Центра МАРС располагается уютное городское кафе и бар. Здесь не только можно выпить кофе и перекусить сэндвичами и французскими булочками, но и послушать отличную музыку на лайв-выступлениях самых модных российских исполнителей. Кроме того, здесь регулярно проводятся выставки видеоарта, показы короткометражного кино, лекции и паблик токи.

Помимо текущего направления развития МАРС имеет интересное и значимое прошлое. Это старейший центр современного искусства, появившийся в Москве в 1988 году. Бывшая Галерея М’АРС стала первым негосударственным пространством в СССР, активно продвигавшим и экспонировавшим современное искусство. В коллекции Центра МАРС находится около 3000 произведений знаковых российских художников второй половины XX века.

Миссией Центра МАРС на сегодняшний день является создание активного, современного и чутко реагирующего организма, ежедневно формируемого кураторами, художникам и нашими посетителями.

  • A very interesting and unusual place, but unreasonably expensive! View all expositions is available for 15 minutes.

  • Very unusual exhibition "Metaformy". Even if you are not at all versed in street art, you'll be interested in. An unusual idea, perfect embodiment! From 1-St Hall are fully immersed in the world of virtuality! Getting there, fully otklûčaeš′sâ from reality and get into some world of magic and mystery.

  • The exhibition includes 6 or 7 premises, do not remember exactly how many, simple installations. In each room are located from 2 until 4 standoffs with "glasses" VR based on Samsung smartphones. Works with only 1 rack, the remaining rack apparently disabled by the administration. This is a very strange looks, you come into the room, look at graffiti, chipped statues, want to wear glasses-a has exactly one thing and turn. In the last room in General at us administrator has disabled the glasses and took them. No explanation, no apology. Now the biggest negative at all, "promo" video present HTC Vive, with controllers that you can use something to do there in virtual reality. This was the only reason I went through the whole Moscow at this Center. In fact-it turned out to be closed. And while the price for all this wonderful show-500 rubles! Could do a discount, given that attraction with HTC Vive is not working, but the thirst for money management prevails.

  • Good show, it is a pity that a little. The only negative was impossible to pay by card (it was about a year ago), now I do not know.

  • All here trying to evaluate the exhibition metoformy, let me put it this way: good, several installations and rooms very good. And if we talk about the Center, it is very pleasant, helpful staff and pleasant atmosphere and layout

  • The first impression is striking, and the second and third etc. Walked many times, and each time someone new lead from their friends. Because the impression from what you see, simply don't pass words))) Shock-in the best sense of the word, cultural and technological.

  • Like audiovizual′no, and installation. But all damp and poorly written and there is no single concept between rooms, the sensors react sluggishly and. .. However, anecdotally-zalipatel′nye pieces caught
